Max Patches for Spectral Audio Freeze - Part 1

In 2008, I shared a number of Max patches for live audio freeze, using the techniques described in the Computer Music Journal article A Tutorial on Spectral Sound Processing Using Max/MSP and Jitter. These patches use the FFT - Fast Fourier Transform in Max to achieve a vivid, alive spectral freeze.

The links mentioned in the 2010 post Max patches back online are not valid anymore, so I revamped a first series of patches to ease the learning process. They are now available on this Download page.

Contents:

  • 01-freeze-spectrum: analysis/re-synthesis of one spectrum
  • 02-stocha-freeze: analysis/stochastic re-synthesis of n successive spectra
  • 03-denoised-freeze: add rough denoiser
  • 04-ar-freeze: add attack/release smoothing
  • 05-harmonic-freeze: freeze successive "notes" or sounds to build harmony
